Accessibility information

Accessibility information is available for these areas of the park:

Drinking water
Cold water taps are located throughout the park. Taps are shut off during the off-season.

An adventure playground, large grassy area and horseshoe pits are in the day-use area.

Boat launch
A concrete, single-wide boat launching ramp is located beside the Lakeside campground entrance. There is also a parking area for vehicles and boat trailers.

A sani-station and dump is available during the collecting season and is located near the entrance of the park. 

Sani-station use fee: $5 per discharge.

Campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite. We encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. 

To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.

Picnic areas

This park has a day-use and picnic area with fire pits, picnic tables, pit toilets, three long sandy beaches and change houses. There is also a covered shelter which has picnic tables and a wood stove. Firewood is not provided in the day-use area so people need to bring their own. 

Group picnicking is open from May 15 to September 30 and reservations are available for the picnic shelter.

Group picnicking fee: $35 per group.
Pit or flush toilets

Pit toilets are located throughout the park. Flush toilets are located at the Lakeside campground.


There are hot showers at the Lakeside campground. The showers are coin operated and cost one looney ($1) for approximately 4 minutes.


Ten kilometres of hiking trails are a popular way for the whole family to enjoy the park. Many of these trails double as cross-country ski trails during the winter.

A self-guiding nature trail begins in the day-use parking lot opposite the picnic shelter. View a beaver lodge and a series of beaver dams. Note the nest boxes and platforms around the pond built by Ducks Unlimited.

For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.


There are three long sandy beaches with two buoyed off swim areas. Keep in mind that there are no lifeguards on duty. 

Canoeing and kayaking can be enjoyed at this park.

Pets on leash

Pets and domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to the potential for problems with bears and other wildlife.
